Aw Christmas, its the most wonderful time of the year, at least that's what I have always heard, some are good, some are great and some . . . not so much. This year was pretty nice all things considered. The boys sure had fun and I didn't get too stressed so I would say Christmas 2012 was good. Some of us spent the whole day in our pajamas.
The Christmas Eve service at church was very entertaining as always with the kids doing the "impromptu" live nativity. All are included. EM pretty much thought he should be a part of everything everywhere and was all over the stage during the whole thing.
Every time they lit the candle at church during advent he wanted to have the fire.
HT "sang" in the children's choir so EM thought he should be up there too.
Even Papa got in on the act, since none of the children wanted to play the donkey that carried Mary, he volunteered. This is a man who isn't afraid to make himself look foolish for the sake of his children. A man recently diagnosed with RA and in considerable pain on his hands and knees for the sake of the children. I do love him so. I'm pretty sure he enjoyed himself also.
New Years was spent with the boys early to bed along with their papa who had a nasty cold, that is still lingering, and I sat up by myself, sewing, binding a quilt actually until at least 10:00pm. We sure do know how to ring in the new year, don't we?!
